For some reason I thought of this place when I saw this.

I suspect that when people say 'Nazi,' most of them really mean 'fascist,' which does have identifiable components that are more inclusive. The Nazis were not entirely typical of fascism, in my opinion, but some of the key features of fascism were highly visible in Nazi Germany, which is why a lot of people simply refer to all fascist ideas and behaviors as 'Nazi.'

Besides, it is a more emotional term, if that is what they want.

Honestly, I think most people use the term "Nazi" as a general insult, without really understanding or caring what the term actually means.

Which paradoxically makes it impossible to talk about Nazism on the interwebs. :|

The nazis were just a fascist political party in Germany while Fascisim is almost a world view. I know the Nazis were terrible but they don't encompass all of fascism.
